The Asyra machine and others like it that supposedly cure allergies, heart disease and so on are simply fraud. Anyone with a conscience should report this to the Federal Trade Commission and the States Attorney's Office. Curing subluxations is one thing but this is simply pathetic. I hope that ethical chiropractors would agree.

Yes, Placebo, I would agree that cold lasers cannot cure or successfully treat allergies.
Cold lasers, however, can successfully treat wounds, as I do, just about every day.
This thing about lasers curing allergies is embarrassing, and in my opinion very misleading. Fortunately, there are just a handful of practitioners who buy into this nonsense. And, like you, I wish they would stop. It's nonsense.

"there are just a handful of practitioners who buy into this nonsense. "

Including the dumb ass chiropractor "aerial" himself. Because without any training, the quack aerial holds himself out to be a healer of wounds.

The chiropractic diaper needs to be emptied.

"So far, there is no science to prove the devices work, but Tucker claims a 70 percent positive response rate."

Now doesn't that sound just like a chiropractor?

Until I mentioned cold laser therapy for wounds, wisdom had NO clude what it was. He had to google cold laser therapy, and only THEN did he become an expert! he he he
Wisdom is a fraud. He bangs the expert bible but he is not a degreed professional. The only one who thinks he is is him.'Nuf said.

Actually---it sounds MORE like 'off-label prescribing'(except...without the potential, very real, harmful side-effects).

eg.
"[The FDA] isn't keeping track of how drugs are marketed for off-label use, even though marketing for off-label use is illegal and it's the FDA's job to enforce that law," said Sen. Charles Grassley, who commissioned the report. "As a result, drug makers aren't being held accountable for promoting unapproved use of medicine, and patient safety is diminished."

Federal law prohibits pharmaceutical companies from marketing a drug to either consumers or doctors for a use that has not been specifically approved by the FDA - also known as an "off label" use. This is because FDA approval of a drug use requires the completion of certain clinical trials; off-label uses have not been subject to this process, and there is no way to know if the drug actually works to treat the condition for which it is being prescribed.

In some cases, off-label uses may indeed help patients. But in other cases, they may actually cause harmful effects, or at best waste a patient's money.

Yet federal law also allows doctors to make the ultimate decisions on which drugs to prescribe, and therefore allows off-label prescriptions.

Yet a 2006 study suggests that more than 20 percent of all prescriptions written in the United States are for non-approved drug uses. And off-label prescribing can vastly increase the profits for pharmaceutical companies such as Cephalon, which saw surging profits once off-label prescribing of its narcolepsy drug Provigil took off for Alzheimer's disease, attention deficit disorder, cocaine addiction, depression, general fatigue and jet lag.

Drug companies have actively lobbied for more relaxed rules regarding off-label marketing. In response, the FDA has proposed new rules that would allow companies to provide doctors with scientific information concerning potential off-label uses.

Even so, Grassley and other pharmaceutical industry critics believe that overtly illegal marketing of drugs for off-label uses remains widespread.

To claim that the anecdotal claims that chiropractors make is the equivalent of "off label" use of medications is not really honest.

Simply because, other than the chiropractor's claim that "it works", there is no other evidence that their bizarre treatments like cold lasers, activator, dnft, AK, sot, nucca, network, pro adjuster etc etc.

Whereas, for example, in one of the ICUs where I work, sildenafil (viagra) is occasionally used to treat pulmonary hypertension. Lowering of PA pressures can clearly be observed after giving the drug.

Meaning, there is objective evidence that off label uses of medications are effective.

Alternatively, there is no real objective evidence that bizarre treatments like "cold laser" and "activator" are good for anything.

Your argument that chiropractors don't need no stink'n evidecne because medical doctors use medications for things other than their intended use really holds NO water. Otherwise, why would you and the chiropractors you support need evidence for anything? you can always use the excuse, "well, medications have off use labeling" .... "so of course cold laser and activator must work".

You presented an illogical argument.

And its funny, not a word from you about the fact that chiropractors get NO actual clinical experience in wound care and yet they claim they are expertly qualified to do so. Bizarre indeed. But just more evidence that you are unable to think or respond logically.

AHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA! Man, this is rich! Now wisdom is an expert on laser therapy!! Man, I think he just broke Michael Phelps' speed record! Man, look at him go! Zooooooooooooooom!
You see, in order for wisdom to 'become' an expert, all you have to do is mention something he knows nothing about, like laser therapy, then wait, oh, I don't know...maybe five minutes, then VOILA! He's an expert at it and knows all about it. Even more than the real experts.
Wisdom is and has always been a fraud. Even he knows that. Who else would call all nurses 'quacks' as wisdom did. Wisdom stated that nurses are quacks since they don't need to take an entrance exam to get into school. So now, based on that, let's believe everything this dumb ass says. he he he

More lies from you mr. quacker? Calling nurses "quacks"? Does it ever end?

But let me guess, you're an expert at laser therapy for allergies now? And where do you think you were trained in allergies? I need a good laugh. Was it at the same place you think you were trained in wound care?

ha ha ha

I've been to your chiropractic school clinics. Chiropractors are not trained in the treatment or diagnosis of allergies. Nor, as you claim, are they trained in "wound care.

You chiropractors really live in a fantasy world.

Like that board certified MD neurologist said last month about wisdom after reading one of wisdom's posts, where wisdom was attempting to diminish a chiropractor by explaining a neurological concept. "The guy who calls himself wisdom knows as much neurology as a typical Jerry Springer guest. Wisdom should not be explaining the nervous system to anyone. He's way over his head--not even close to our league." A direct quote from a board certified neurological about wisdom.
The truth hurts, doesn't it fraud? Even one of your own idols thinks you're a dumb ass. Doesn't get any better.

Drue boy, the above chiropractor aerial claimed he's an expert in wound care. Ciropractors get no training in wound care. They are not trail Ed in treating wounds. Yet, here you are with no comment about obvious fraud. Typical.

Come on now Wisdom. Everyone knows my site is not a legitimate chiropractic site. I designed the site to help failed health professionals ease their pain. We currently have 26 active members none of which have ever became board certified. I am the ringleader of this anti chiropractic cult, and I don't promote Wisdom's behavior outside our site.
